7 Final reflections

Following the review of a range of evidence throughout this course, the final activity (Activity 7) encourages you to return to your initial response in Activity 1.

Activity 7 Is technology helping or hindering children’s physical activity levels? Revisiting your initial thoughts

Timing: Allow 10 minutes

Having now read and evaluated a sample of evidence on the impact of technology on children’s physical activity levels, revisit your answer to the original question in Activity 1 of this course. Return to the original question in Activity 1 and your response to it.

Has your opinion changed at all? If it has changed, consider the reasons for this and the extent to which it has changed. If your opinion remains the same, consider whether and how the information provided in the course has informed your viewpoint.

Discussion

It is useful to reflect on your journey through the course to see whether your initial judgement has either been changed or perhaps reinforced by what you have learned. Whichever it is, hopefully you now have more evidence to support your decision.
